  1. linnéa Cumings Manion :

    Warm and fond memories of Roszi and may she rest ever-so peacefully in South Africa. I am Linnéa who knew Renata and Sonja and I remember and often visited their home in Musgrave Road, Durban. I was travelling on a bus with Sonja along Moore Road and she said “That is the lovely little house where Renata lives” . I remember Sylvester and the amazingly tasteful and
    beautiful chalet style on the corner of Musgrave Road.
    I seem to remember visiting Renata in her house in Moore Road. I loved and remember the family so well. Accept my affectionate condolences to the special family of Roszi and Sylvester.
